Chroma opens the call for the submission of art work in any medium in response to the word red.
A group show will be held in December presenting a selection of submissions curated by Chroma. A collection of works made in isolation from one another with a colour being the only given commonality, the show will explore the conversations the works can and are forced to have through their curation and what elements of association are generated to form a narrative or dialogue. The show will experiment with the possibilities of language as a response to something inherently visual, and the relationship between this collective chromatic discourse and each individual work.
Submissions will also be considered for the creation of Chroma’s Red Issue publication. This will present the same conceptual exploration as the exhibition but will take a concrete object-form, culminating individual works into a single art object.
Email a maximum of three photographs of the proposed work, or a detailed (1 side of A4) proposal if the work is not yet made. Please include any titles, dimensions and materials. Selected, works should be dropped off at the gallery location (Peckham) with instructions and will be hung by the team. Arrangements can be made for artists to help hang should they have specific technical requirements. There are no submission fees however artists selected will be required to pay a £25 exhibiting fee.
